Next, let’s take a look at some of the ways oil pulling can boost your health.
Health Benefits Of Oil Pulling
Here are a few of the reported benefits of oil pulling with coconut oil:
- excellent teeth whitener
- detoxifies the body
- improves skin conditions
- heals bleeding gums
- helps reverse gingivitis
- freshens your breath
- kills bacteria
- reduces plaque
- prevents, and even reverses, tooth decay (amazing, right?!)
And, now, some simple steps to show you just how this is done.
How To Do Oil Pulling For Better Oral Health
- Put 1 to 2 teaspoons (or up to 1 tablespoon) of oil in your mouth. If you’re using coconut oil you may need to chew it a little at first to help it dissolve because it’s solid at room temperature.
- Swish the oil in your mouth for 20 minutes. Make sure your swishing is hard enough to *pull the oil through your teeth, but not so hard to cause stress or jaw pain. A gentle swishing movement is perfect. When you’re swishing make sure you do not gargle or swallow any of the oil! This would put the harmful toxins back into your body.
- Then, spit the oil out in the trash. Do not spit in the sink because this could clog up your plumbing.
- Rinse your mouth with water, swishing well. Repeat until all the oil is gone.
- Brush your teeth as you normally would.
- Check out your clean white smile!
